In an article released by End Citizens United, it’s been revealed that a special interest group is giving $2 million to House Republicans who voted in May 2017 to remove health care from millions of US citizens. This money is being given to 21 Republicans that voted for the Obamacare repeal bill that will result about 24 million people losing their coverage that they have on ACA exchanges.
Among the other changes the bill includes is vastly increasing the cost of health care for everyone over the age of 50 as it includes an age tax. The bill also allows insurers to deny coverage to those with pre-existing conditions such as cancer, high blood pressure, cancer, and pregnancy. The group giving money to these Republicans is the American Action Network which is an organization that refuses to reveal who is providing funding for it.
End Citizens United is a political action committee (PAC) that was founded in the wake of the US Supreme Courts decision that resulted in the political system being taken over by deep-pocketed corporations and wealthy individuals who know hold outsized power over the political process. This organization is dedicated to backing politicians who seek campaign finance reform that will roll back some of the consequences of the Supreme Court ruling and ultimately they hope to pass a constitutional amendment limiting what people can give to political campaigns.
In the first three months of 2017, End Citizens United was able to collect over $4 million in contributions from small donors. They are now expecting they will raise over $35 million before the 2018 midterm elections which will greatly outpace the $25 million they had contributed to them for the 2016 presidential elections.
The $4 million that End Citizens United has taken in so far was given by around 100,000 people each contributing an average of $12. The Executive Director and President of End Citizens United, Tiffany Miller, said that around 40,000 of those people had contributed to the PAC for the first time. Comments she has received from contributors indicate an overwhelming sentiment that the entire system is rigged against them by wealthy people and corporations. They are also very angry about Donald Trump winning the presidency and want to do their part to fight back against his agenda as well as that of Republicans in the House and Senate.
One of the beneficiaries of End Citizens United’s efforts is Jon Ossoff of Georgia, a Democratic candidate who is running in a heavily Republican area and for whom they want to raise $500,000. He has been remarkably successful in his campaign to win the seat that was left by Tom Price who took on the role of Health and Human Services.

The biography of George Soros brings out a man who has come face to face with a real struggle. Born in Hungary, the 87-year-old lived at a time when the Nazis occupied Budapest. He saw the struggles his father went through trying to save the entire family. They would later escape to London where George Soros put himself through the London School of Economics while working as a railway porter and a waiter. When he finished his college education, George started working in the finance department of a merchant Bank. Later on, he relocated to New York, began working on Wall Street and in 1969, he formed a hedge fund worth $12 million which was later rebranded to Quantum Fund. Several decades later, George Soros is still a heavyweight investor through the Soros Fund Management, and his family office has assets worth more than $30 billion. This year, Soros appointed one of the most prominent women in Wall Street, Dawn Fitzpatrick, to serve as the CIO of SFM. Dawn comes in as the 7th chief investment officer of SFM since 2000. George’s real time net worth is $25.2 billion, according to Forbes.
Irrespective of his age, the fierce critic of the US president Donald J. Trump is still on the forefront of the ideological struggles that characterize the world’s politics. He began this struggle a long time ago and even founded the Open Society Foundation in 1984. Among the earliest initiatives of the foundation was to supply copy machines to the Universities, civil society groups and libraries in his native (at the time a Soviet-dominated Hungary) to help them reprint banned publications. When the Berlin Wall fell, George Soros extended his advisory services to help them enjoy a smooth transition to free markets and democracy. His foundation collaborated with the local politicians and the dissidents – the majority of which played significant roles in the key events during the histories of their countries.

Today, George Soros funds the activities of the Democratic Party, and several causes such as Black Lives Matters. George Soros showed open opposition to the Donald Trump’s presidency and even funded Hillary Clinton’s campaigns last year. He uses the various networks of Open Society Foundations (located in over 100 countries) to push for his agendas that touch on justice and social concerns. While he is seen as a hero on one side, the world dictators do not tend to express anything positive thing about George Soros. Nevertheless, he is never cowed by such sentiments. In September 2016, George Soros gave out $500 million to help in financing the businesses established and managed by migrants, the refugees, and the host communities, according to Politico. George believes in a world where the political leaders allow democracy to prevail, and governments are accountable to their citizens.
